Reaffirming strong support for vaccinations, a SYRIZA spokesman on Thursday made accusations against the ruling New Democracy, saying that it “turns a blind eye” to the fact, he said, that anti-vaccines are part of its constituency.
Nassos Iliopoulos said anti-vaccination demonstrations in major cities in Greece were a wake-up call for the ruling party. “It is clear that the ND deputies are well aware of anti-vaccinations,” he said.
“The government and [премьер-министр Кириакос] The Mitsotakis are fully responsible for this mobilization, ”as he said their failed vaccination policy“ sabotaged ”efforts.
